Trend Micro Anti-Malware Solution drives my disk usage to 100%

For the last two months, "Trend Micro Anti-Malware Solution" will drive my disk usage to 100% for 20 - 30 seconds at a time.  BRowsers and applications become unresponsive and the PC comes to a standstill.  It will drop back and things will start working for about a minute and then it repeats the same cycle, making the machine unusable.  I have verified that the computer has MORE than the minimum requirements for running Trend Micro and Trend Password Manager.  I have verified that there are no conflicting programs installed on the machine and I have uninstalled and reinstalled Trend Micro FOUR TIMES.  The problem remains.  Running latest Windows 10 Update as of 10/5/2018.
